Slimmer Hips, Larger Lips---Interesting Side Effect of Maintenance

Saturday, September 10, 2011

Yes, I recently noticed that since I have reached my all-time low weight-shedding goal, not only have I had to literally purchase an entire new wardrobe, including underwear (only my shoes, hats, and scarves still fit!), but another result of weight loss is a more pouty upper lip! No filler or cosmetic procedure-----Having shed the burdensome extra weight I have been carrying, having a happier outlook, becoming a healthy, fit individual, I am more RELAXED, less tense all the time. I no longer hold my lips in a tight straight line.

The delightful side effects are slim hips, that I don't clench my face and lips any more, and I'm no longer angry and disappointed in myself.

My upper lip has become youthfully full! I just noticed it the other day while putting on some gloss and didn't feel the need to use a lip pencil.

I have learned so much on this journey. I have accomplished a monumental task and enjoyed the journey, really, because it turned out to be one of self discovery, too.

I urge you to notice the subtle changes in your body and mind, as well as the changes in weight. Shedding pounds and learning to maintain that loss helps us become happier people because it's OUR accomplishment; we're doing something important for ourselves; we've got to feel whole and worthy before we can possibly hope to fully know and appreciate love of others. emoticon
